    We'll NEVER see a player with prettier strokes than Federer's

    I think he is also really well proportioned. Like I loved Sampras, but he had a kind of hunched posture or something. So never was as pleasing to the eye. Definitely not a bad looking game at all but just a thought

    Tsitsipas and Fognini few words exchanged

    Same here, it's all for our entertainment so who the fk cares.

    Isospeed Grey Fire Official Thread.

    Just try it on its own I use Rpm blast in the mains. Lovely combo, feels crisp and soft with access to spin. Lasts a bit longer with the grey fire too

    Has a player ever been beaten so bad you felt sorry?

    Always laugh when someone calls another a snowflake. 9/10 they're the one offended by every possible thing imaginable

    Isospeed Grey Fire Official Thread.

    I've put rpm in the mains, or as jolly said black Knight. Also no poly plays well after 8 hours. This one is above average though

    Losing matches while having match points, part of Federer "legacy" or not?

    I also think it's something to do with style of play. In general I think djok game just has less complexity and smaller risk. Possibly easier to execute under pressure? I agree with this analysis though

    Naomi Osaka eyes tennis return 'soon' after feeling 'itch' to play again

    I wish all of the negative people here had as much disgust for corporations and the wealthy who don't pay tax. This is an individual sport, she can do whatever she wants. The money flows when she's winning. Some of you need a hell of a lot more therapy than Naomi

    Baller on a budget.

    I just tried out alu again for the first time in a year or two. It's just so good. I don't want to explain everything but it just goes in. Simple as that. Such direct feel. Shame it dies quickly but the candle that burns twice as bright burns half as long I've bought some 1.38mm gauge and...

    Baller on a budget.

    Concept 1.33 served me ok. Good control and decent feel. Lasted ages too.

    Stop the nonsense please - the only ATP player in the last 40 years who came closer than Djokovic in the CYGS chase was Djokovic himself

    If rafa and Roger had to face Medvedev in those attempts, how would it end? In all seriousness these debates are just hypothetical

    new to polys which should i get

    Rpm is garbage for you. It's pretty comfortable for me and provides mostly what I need. It's also reasonably cheaper than lux. Just lasts 2/3 hours for me I agree though with the poly. I managed to ween a few people off poly as they really didn't need it. First by a hybrid with multi and then...

    Do polyester strings only lose tension over time or do they also lose function?

    Combination of, tension, elasticity and the coating on the string wearing away

    New theory: doing drills is pointless above 3.5

    I honestly believe 50-100 shots in practice is worth one match shot. Or something like that. Why you gotta work hard

    What is a string in between the Alu Power and Hawke Touch?

    I know I harp on about this string. But you are basically describing isospeed grey fire

    Rf97 replacement and quality control

    Hi all, I currently use the rf97. I have 5 rackets and all are different. 3/4 are ok but one not only feels heavier it feels stiffer too, maybe because I have used it less. The problem is, when I need a new frame, Its just stupidly expensive (rf) but already the swingweight and static weight...

    No love for a favourite string of mine

    It has a unique feel. Can't quite describe, not as crisp as mp, but still good connection with the ball. I actually think grey fire outperforms it to be honest but mp definitely holds tension longer. Gf is still above average in this category. Gf is softer, more spin potential but I need to drop...

    Head Hawk vs Touch vs Kirschbaum Pro Line Evolution vs other string suggestions?

    Fair enough, give em a try I guess. They're all kinda dead playing, control strings as you'd expect from a poly. I was very disappointed with touch, just didn't feel connected or in control of the ball. And I think a few people have said the same.

    No love for a favourite string of mine

    I love the feel of this string, and it lasts ages. I don't like tour bite as it's quite inconsistent. It doesn't have the ball grab of alu but I actually think max power is stiffer and I should have strung it 3lbs lower. Another great German string is isospeed grey fire

    Head Hawk vs Touch vs Kirschbaum Pro Line Evolution vs other string suggestions?

    I've heard touch is crap. Look at isospeed grey fire, honestly a better string than head hawk, and also made by head. Hawk is a decent string at control, tension maintenance but not feel and ball grab. Grey fire beats it at that. What made you settle with these strings?

    2021 USO SF - [2] Daniil Medvedev vs [12] Felix Auger Aliassime

    Is there anything more cringe than med/zverev/djok grinding someone down with just efficient tennis then demanding cheers from the crowd, like do they have zero self awareness

    Exactly 10 years ago Federer was publicly struggling to accept Djokovic defeat. How do you see it now?

    Thing is he is right, djokovic was basically out on that point (reaction before the point). He took a risk and luckily paid off. Still doesn't mean Roger should have said anything, he had another mp. Problem is most of you all here are some internet warriors so have never got close to...
